It is higher quality than the version in the Prelinger Collection as the source was 35mm with substantially less scratches and dirt.

'The Beulah Show' was the first TV series to feature an African American woman in the lead role. This episode is called "The Waltz". The show starred Hattie McDaniel. It's commonly believed that most episodes of this show were destroyed. The show was controversial for claims of "racial stereotyping", though to be honest, I could think of plenty of shows that did the same thing years later without complaint.

Within Our Gates was produced and directed by Oscar Micheaux in 1919. He is considered to be the first African-American director of feature films and this is the first such film still in existence. I found the plot difficult to follow, and he does not give full play to the "money" scenes at the conclusion but it is certainly of historic interest.

A combination of field recordings, guitars, flutes, voices and electronic drones. Sometimes noisy and foreboding, other times delicate and lonely, "Three Pieces" is the sounds of the city translated into music. It is very much a portrait of the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, N.Y., during the summer of 2007, which at that time was the center of building frenzy.
